Email David Solomon, I'm sure he can locate a dealer for you. If you're a big bass hound, a sub is a definite must. But, if not, and your room is small, you may decide to skip the sub....

Bryan:
You have picked some fine finalists. I've had the opportunity to hear all of them, this is my take:
The Aperion 532's have a more european sound, and don't go nearly as deep as the others....

Out of curiosity, did you try using a vacuum with a woman's stocking over the opening? I know of several people on different forums who have saved pushed in domes this way, a few with metal tweeters.

The polks do require "quality" amplification, that doesn't mean they need 300wpc. Find a truly well-built amp and they will sing.

You mentioned room size of 26x12, how tall is the ceiling? An 8ft...

I would recommend doing the 30 day trial with Aperion. Listening to speakers in your own home is the very best way to judge. I've heard the 533's in a large room (church hall), they sounded quite...

Iostream is right, the Creek is a fine piece of equipment, I'd be very surprised if the combo didn't give off a nice synergy.

With the right amplifier, the SL6si's can still sing and handle themselves quite well. I still sometimes regret selling my pair 2 years ago, but it was time for a fresh sound.

One of my writers attended the Montreal show, needless to say he now understands why I'm so impressed with the D4's & D5's. Glad to hear the show went so well for you.

I think if you can afford it, go with the 5's. There is more depth to the music coming from the speaker. You may feel that won't want or need a sub. Either way, just make sure to get a good pair of...

In my experience with the D5's, it's not the quantity of the wpc, but the quality that matters. My 38wpc Onix SP3 tube made the D5's sing without problem. On the other hand, a 90wpc Sony receiver...
